It's the last and first place you see each day. The bedroom. It's also the most satisfying to Cure. Changes you make here will translate immediately into totally new feeling when you lie down for the night. Whether it's crisp new sheets, a newly organized clothing closet or a fresh, colorful coat of paint, the improvements will affect your rest and - ideally - have you waking with more energy each morning. (By the way, we're filling in for Laure, who is out this week. Our apologies for getting this week's post up a few days late)
This Week's Assignment:
In the Deep Treatment you are diving headfirst into the bedroom, working to declutter and luxurify your space. I do recommend an air purifier and use them ourselves in both of our rooms. While it may seem to some like an indulgence, keep in mind that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air and that 8 hours of breathing while asleep means you are sucking in a good deal of the room at night.
One Room Workout? Start Cleaning up! Clean up is as important as set up and it usually takes longer than you think, so start in on it now. Additionally, take a close look at your artwork this week. I always find that people do a disservice to their art by hanging it either too high or in an unflattering grouping. Fixing this can really make a room sing.
Info:The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Fridays allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics and post them to this great Flickr pool or simply tag them with "apartmenttherapycurela." See our old pics here too.
